Palm's Verizon phones to be monior upgrades

Verizon's lineup of Palm phones will include just two upgraded versions of existing Palm models with familiar names, a source says today. The tip suggests that the Wi-Fi enabled Pixi will reach Verizon as the Pixi Plus and that the Palm Pre Plus is real, though what changes the latter would get aren't evident. Both phones would be physically identical on the outside, but the BGR tip doesn't say if the processor or storage would improve.

Both phones would run webOS 1.3.5 and cast doubts on the likelihood that Palm will use its CES keynote to unveil a major webOS revision for the near future.

Either phone addition will give Palm a much-needed boost to its phone sales, as its exclusivity to Sprint in the US has hurt year-over-year sales despite the increased popularity of the phones it does offer.
